The Medieval and Early Modern German Studies Graduate Colloquium 2023 brings together faculty and graduate student scholars of pre-modern German literature and culture from North American universities. A bi-annual collaboration between pre-modernist Germanists at Princeton, Stanford, Berkeley, U of Toronto, U of Waterloo, and University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, the gathering is designed to facilitate exchange of and feedback on graduate work in progress as well as to provide networking opportunities for all participants, who are often singularities on their individual campuses.

This year’s gathering at Princeton features a keynote lecture by Professor Aleksandra Prica (UNC-Chapel Hill), titled: “The Time of the Lily: Vigilance, Speculation, and the Dawn of the New World in Jacob Böhme’s ‘Aurora’ (1612).” The keynote will take place on Thursday, Nov. 2 at 5pm, followed by discussions of pre-circulated papers of participating graduate students on Friday and Saturday, Nov. 3 and 4.
